Posthumous← backOne of our ongoing projects, Posthumous is a “Beat’em Up” game revolving around the secret of the Jiang Shi!
These entities are a type of reanimated corpses in Chinese folklore. They have stiff bodies and are dressed in official garments from the Qing Dynasty. They move around hoping, with their arms outstretched. The jiang shis are generally compared to a mix between the western zoombies and vampires. The Jiang Shis are terrible creatures that attack humans usually at night to absorb their ki (life force). In Posthumous, there are several types, each with a specific hability.
The game features 3 main characters:
Mister X, a renegade monk who runs across China looking for amulets to undo his curse. His real name is still a mistery.
Yue Zuanshi (月鑽石), a girl raised at her father’s gym. She’s known for her tender beauty and strict rigidity when it comes to her father’s lessons. Yue fights to answer the mysteries from her past.
Lao Jun (老俊), a ancient man with past glorious days. Nowadays, he dedicates his time traveling through the East tasting all the drinks that he finds in search of the legendary sacred liquor.
